When you say that it doesn't work, do you get any error codes generated? Can you successfully ping from one pc to the other?
Does the wireless control panel report that a connection is established?
Go to each computer, open an command window, type "ipconfig /all" and show us the output for both machines.
I have turned off the firewall and I also replaced the 'localhost' string with the IP of the server in the example but it gave generic error in tcp open connection. I also entered the name of the server computer in place of localhost and then it didn't show any error but connection just timed out.
Basically I haven't been able to ping from one pc to another. Can you pls tell me a way to ping from one pc to another or to find out whether labview is detecting the wireless network or not?
Well if you can't ping then the network setup itself is seriously misconfigured. ping tests about the lowest level of IP network communication and if that doesn't work you should first try to find the configuration problem before even attempting to debug TCP/IP or UDP or other higher level protocols.
LabVIEW does not detect any network interface at all. It just uses the system network services and they need to be setup correctly in order for network traffic to work at all. Since your firewall is already disabled I would suspect network address configuration problems. Without specific routers the IP addresses of both computers need to be in the same subnet and both computers need to be configured to use the same subnet range too.
